What a journey it has been for 12-15 Cliff Terrace. Heralded a resounding success in May 2008 as a flagship project for KCC No Use Empty Scheme, the building stood empty until January 2010. The developer, Wards Renovation and Construction Limited (Company Registration No. 5166962), owned by Ramsgate FC's Jim Ward, has gone into receivership.
Is this really the best outcome for a grade II listed building that was hailed as a major success of regeneration?
One would hope that a building control completion certificate has been issued, given the fact that young families are tenants in the building.
And for the future? Well, the interior renovation being far from luxury, then perhaps someone will come along to return the building to it's rightful glory as a restaurant with letting rooms for tourism.
Here are photographs we have taken of the building in the last few years.
